Diving into the abyss

Shirley Schrift, a.k.a. Shelley Winters, died today. As a kid, I knew her only from guest appearances on shows like "Fantasy Island" and, of course, her memorable turn in "The Poseidon Adventure."

She may have evolved into a punchline, but in her prime she was a helluva actress (and a pretty hot dame, as well). Check her out in "Lolita" (the original) and "The Night of the Hunter," two of my all-time faves.


  1. I was about to email you about this... Should have known you would beat me to it.

  2. Great blog.  I just like the site and I will get a
    visit again! In my spare time I usually try and look
    for blogs just as neat as yours.
    No matter when you are, just stop by and check for my same day cash advance blog site.
